Will we get AGI before 2031?

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) refers to a type of artificial intelligence that has the ability to understand, learn, and apply its intelligence to a wide variety of problems, much like a human being. Unlike narrow or weak AI, which is designed and trained for specific tasks (like language translation, playing a game, or image recognition), AGI can theoretically perform any intellectual task that a human being can. It involves the capability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly, and learn from experience.

Resolves as true if such a system is created before January 1st 2031

IMO these questions are impossible to place bets on without very strict resolution criteria. Could be anywhere from 1% to 99% probability depending on your definition of AGI.

predicts YES

@nsokolsky That's a good point. I'm currently on the lookout for an objective set of criteria that clicks for me. If you have any recommendations please let me know. If I don't find any that suit my framing of this question then I'll write a list of specifications in the description.

@RemNi “No intellectual task remains where a human or a group of humans are capable of producing a better output than an AI”

This is solved for chess and Go but not for (say) writing good standup material.

predicts YES

For this what is chatgpt lacking besides "learn quickly, and learn from experience."?

predicts YES

@singer GPT4 can't solve these two problems:

And then beyond that I'd say it's unable to reason and plan over long contexts like a human, even when provided with databases and retrieval capabilities. GPT4 is also unable to process video data (although there are ways to hack this in to the vision encoder by supplying frames from a video). Those are just a few examples, but there's potentially a long list.
